Review of The Huntress

The Watchful Ear has posted a truly thoughtful review of my poetry and music collaboration, The Huntress, with Joseph Clayton Mills and Deanna Varagona. "Fantastic, unusual work." "The music is stunning." "I rarely read poetry, but found each these little vignettes a real gem."

More from "Daughter of a Tree Farm"

Last week's "Tuesday Poem" on Dusie featured an excerpt from "Daughter of a Tree Farm."

The poems draw on this erased text, while incorporating my own words to find a synthesis of the two minds.
